Vaporwaves is the first plugin dedicated to vaporwave. The VST/AU plugin instrument contains a collection of 75 multi-sampled sounds inspired by the cheesy sound of 80s pop music. The instrument contains everything from distorted VHS pads to glassy pianos, beautiful Rhodes to FM mallets as well as the obligatory DX piano, slap bass and saxophone! The collection of sounds is a mix of very clean tones and distorted sounds. Each sound can be degraded VHS style by using the onboard effects.

The drums are from Vintage Drum Elements.
